Róisín Murphy Announces Remix Album, Invites Us Into Her “Assimilation”
It’s the first single from Crooked Machine, the reshaping of last year’s Róisín Machine by producer Crooked Man.
Last fall, Irish pop artist Róisín Murphy released one of the best albums of 2020. Already plotting her next masterpiece, Murphy has released a new single “Assimilation” and announced a remix album of last October’s Róisín Machine called Crooked Machine.
The reimagining of Róisín Machine will be led by Sheffield-based producer and long-standing partner DJ Parrot a.k.a. Crooked Man. In a statement, Murphy had some kind words for her fellow musician, who also produced Róisín Machine. “Parrot doesn’t try to be ‘cool,’ I reckon that’s the last thing on his mind. He makes music with a real sense of responsibility to the craft… I think Crooked Machine is one of his greatest achievements so far. I left him and Fat Dave to their own devices on this and they have outdone themselves! I absolutely love it!! I think I prefer it to the original album, slightly less me and all the more ‘cool’ for it!”
“Assimilation” is the remaking of Róisín Machine‘s opener, “Simulation.” The result is a bit shorter with a less climatic build. “Assimilation” is funkier, with a fuller bass, a bit more vibey. Check it out below.
Crooked Machine is out April 23 via Skint.
